2017 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion Energi than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Ford Fusion Energi may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fusion Energi is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Fusion Energi will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion Energi is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Fusion Energi, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion Energi has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion Energi and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion Energi is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
